Does Reading More Make You Harder to Please?

Does Reading More Make You Harder to Please?
14 July, 2015 / 4 Comments

Lately I’ve been wondering if the more I read, the less impressed I am by books.  Do you know what I mean? As I’ve discussed previously, it has been a ridiculously long time since I’ve rated a book 5 stars.  Now, is that because I really just haven’t found a really great book in over a year, or is it some other reason?  Is it maybe that I’ve read so many books that I’m harder to please?  I think it’s possible that I get harder on books the more I read because I have more and more books to compare my […]

My Nails This Week: New Twist on French Tip

I actually have no clue if this design has been done before (surely I’m not the first one to think of this?), but the idea came fresh and clean into my mind with no use of inspiration from others.  So, here it is: The colours don’t show up the greatest in this picture, but they are a pale blue-grey and a navy blue. What do you think of this design? Let me know in the comments what you think, link me up to your own, or suggest a design for me to try!

Will Book Publishing Houses Ever Cease to Exist?

Will Book Publishing Houses Ever Cease to Exist?
23 June, 2015 / 3 Comments

Another random thought popped into my head and since I’m embracing whatever my mind decides to come up with for discussions, I’m going to be talking about another odd one.  I was thinking about whether book publishing houses will ever cease to exist.  I recently talked about the possibility of books not having covers and what would happen if they didn’t.  This spurred some talk about the fact that it could happen some day, due to eBooks becoming more and more popular.  So, what if eBooks some day take over and there are no more print books?  How will this […]
